The WWE Draft is set to make grand return this week with a two-night extravaganza spanning April 26 and April 29, taking place on both Raw and SmackDown. The Draft promises to shake things up across the main roster and NXT, with talents from both brands up for grabs.

One notable change in plans involves Trick Williams, who was previously in line for a potential move to Raw or SmackDown. However, those plans have been scrapped as Williams is now slated to vie for the NXT Title at the upcoming Spring Breakin’ episode of NXT on Tuesday night. Originally viewed as a surefire pick for a main roster call-up alongside Carmelo Hayes, Williams now finds himself rooted in NXT. Conversely, Von Wagner’s prospects for a main roster move were dashed when he was released from WWE.

The anticipation for Friday’s SmackDown is palpable, with expectations running high for one of the most-watched episodes of the year. While details remain scarce, the contract signing between Cody Rhodes and AJ Styles for their Backlash Undisputed WWE Universal Championship match has been confirmed.

Raw’s Draft night is poised to be a star-studded affair, with a slew of top talents from the red brand slated to appear. Among those expected to make an appearance are Intercontinental Champion Sami Zayn, The New Day, Sheamus, Bronson Reed, The Miz, Kayden Carter, Katana Chance, and several others.


With the Draft looming large and the landscape of WWE on the brink of transformation, the excitement is palpable. Who will rise to the occasion and make their mark on a new brand? Which superstars will find themselves on unexpected trajectories? As the WWE Draft unfolds, the possibilities are endless.
